It would be useful if there was an icon on the screen showing the current volume or brightness level when the corresponding keyboard button is pressed. Currently, there is no indication of what the current volume level is when I change it with a button.

It is not enough to detect the keys.

Because of #1677, the volume change detection must be built using the ALSA API. See the alsaaudio or pyalsa modules. See also #9913.

Brightness changes will be even more complex. Sugar does not handle brightness at the moment.
Change detection might read /sys/devices/platform/dcon/backlight/dcon-bl/brightness on an XO, but on other systems it isn't clear what can be used.

No this bug has not been fixed. Although it is visible in the frame, it is not visible after a keyboard event.

With the brightness merged, we now have the models needed to implement this. However, we do not have the UI yet. Users still must go to the frame to see this.

Thanks, well spotted. Also need to fix #1677 and show volume changes.
